Gov. Phil Murphy spent part of Thursday touring a medical marijuana dispensary in Cranbury.

The visit to the Breakwater Treatment and Wellness Center comes two days after he signed an executive order calling for a review of New Jersey’s medical marijuana program.

Murphy says that the program as it stands currently is too limited for patients.

“On the list of elements of the audit is what afflictions should be eligible for medical marijuana. My personal opinion…is the list is far too narrow…that needs to be expanded dramatically,” the governor says.

Murphy says that he also hopes to move forward on legalizing recreational marijuana soon, but says that he wants to keep that separate from the medical marijuana program.
